The new cosmogenic nuclide dating laboratory is under development in 2020 at CENIEH. The method is capable measuring surface exposure ages, rock/soil/basin erosion rates, and deposition ages of sediments. The lab will offer full sample preparation of quartz-bearing geological/archaeological materials for the measurements of 10Be and 26Al via AMS. The first call for user access will be open in early 2021.
This laboratory not only provides access to services advantageously, but it also provides users with advice about the most appropriate technique to use depending on the characteristics of the sample and its preparation.
